Update: Council approved the rezoning for Pino’s proposed shopping centre.
Ben Pino Investments Inc. is looking to get approval from council on Tuesday to make land he currently owns beside the Petro-Canada gas station near Great Northern Road and Second Line into 100 per cent commercial property for a shopping centre.
It will be a 106,705 square foot complex with a grocery store, pharmacy and other amenities.
The parking lot will have 438 spaces.
It has offered to meet with the Accessibility Committee to make sure the build will be accessible to all.
It has mainly come to council for a rezoning issue so one portion can be rezoned from industrial to commercial on the land and another portion can be rezoned from Highway Zone and Medium Industrial to Shopping Centre Commercial Zone.
The city has retained CIMA Consulting to look at the traffic implications in the whole Great Northern Road/Second Line area.
